Square Enix announced Valkyrie Elysium today during the latest State of Play showcase. This is an all-new entry in the action-RPG Valkyrie franchise that began way back on the original PlayStation with Valkyrie Profile.

The previous game wasn't even released on consoles. Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin was first released in Japan in 2016 and was a mobile only experience. This new game, Valkyrie Elysium, is in development for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam. It is expected to be released later in 2022.

Valkyrie Elysium is being developed by Soleil Ltd. and promises to blend together an original story steeped in Norse mythology with fast-paced flashy combat.

The trailer provides a first glimpse of the game’s protagonist, a young Valkyrie who is entrusted with the fate of the world by the All-Father, the highest of gods and ruler of all creation. She will face various enemies on her quest and must utilize a variety of weapons, magic and the power of her allies to prevent Ragnarok—the destruction of the world. VALKYRIE ELYSIUM calls on its roots with music from series regular Motoi Sakuraba while driving the series forward in a fresh, new direction with classic combat mechanics, such as finishing moves and combo systems, reimagined for an action-RPG. The game also features character designs by Yuya Nagai of CyDesignation, Inc.
